How long should 'interrupted education' explanation be?

Postby dlrbfl » Thu Nov 14, 2013 3:38 am

I'm finishing up my app for CLS.
They ask you to write an explanation for interrupted education in the Education section of the app but also ask you to submit an addenda. I saw in another post that ppl just write the exact same thing on both of them, but how long should they be?

mine is one sentence. "I took a semester off to work at blahblah"
Would this be okay?
Feels weird to upload a doc file with just one sentence written on it.

Thanks for helping!

Depends on the situation. If you took the time off to work, I'd say a paragraph should be enough.
